Atmosphere is everything and an easy and unique way to set the scene is with the Hue Connected Light Bulb Starter Kit by Philips.
Simply pick the lights or lamps you want to work with Hue and screw in the wireless bulbs. Next, plug the bridge into your wireless router for the ability to control up to 50 bulbs at a time.
Finally, download the app (Hue by Philips), and you’re ready to get started. You can pull up your photos and use them to create lighting scenes in your home. Just tap on a color in one of the photos and the amazing Hue light bulbs will mimic it.
You can even save the lighting scenes as you create them, then group them together to make new and interesting color and light combinations all within one room.
Need to set the right setting in a pinch? Just choose from one of the app’s pre-configured Light Recipes.
